2008 Season MLB Baseball Past Picks
March 31, 2008
Texas at Seattle
Monday 03/31 06:40 PM Eastern
3 units on Seattle -1.5 runs +130 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Texas certainly hasn't been much on the road, as they had the fewest wins in all of baseball on the road last season with just 28. Kevin Millwood certainly didn't aid that cause as the Rangers did not win a road game started by Millwood after the middle of June. That was nine consecutive starts. Eric Bedard won 12 of his last 13 starts last season for a team that didn't swing the bats very well, yet 10 of those 13 games were won by two runs or more. Amazingly, of Bedard's 13 wins last season every single one of them was by two runs or more. He now has a much more dependable lineup to produce even more runs. With the futility of Millwood and the Rangers on the road combined with the success of Bedard, we will play the runline in this one with the host Mariners.
